Your favorite 'awful' piece of clothing

Postby MonsieurViktor » Fri Sep 03, 2010 12:52 am

When I was but a little babybat (waaay back at 13.) I used to wear a stretchy Hawaiian print tshirt with a fishnet shirt and vinyl pants. For some reason... It worked. But it was honestly the most godawful thing I ever owned.

I still own that shirt...and sometimes think about wearing it.


So tell me my fellow friends, what is YOUR favorite awful piece of clothing?

A few years ago I bought this horrendous black T-shirt with stupid, colorful cutesy little monsters all over it, and I wore it for about five times, then I decided that it looks absolutely hilarious (even for a perkygoth).

Then, I got into deathrock/tradgoth, and I started to customize my clothes, and in a moment of sudden inspiration I cut off the sleeves of this silly T-shirt and also messed with the neckline, then messed up the whole thing and guess what, it ended up being a new favourite of mine. But I still find that pattern rather awful. :mrgreen:

About 20 years ago, I bought a plain, black sweater made from synthetic yarn. I've worn it so much over the years that it's worn thin under the arms, and I've mended it a few times, but I refuse to throw it out. It's like an old friend.

It's so ratty that I only wear it at home, but if I were a dog, I'd want my bed lined with it. Maybe I should request to be buried in it!

I have this long, black sweater that was pretty much my gimmick when I was a proto-babybat in high school. A very cheap gimmick since I pretended it was a trench coat. -_-

I don't wear it anymore.

I've lost some of my favourites over the years in various moving incidents. :(

I used to have this really awful babydoll tshirt with Winnie the Pooh that I wore with everything. It was white. XD

I had these horrible green and black tripp pants in high school with this hot pink punk rocker hello kitty tshirt. I wore both of them so often they literally fell apart at the seems. After five or six repairs, I stashed them in the back of my closet....and my fiance threw them out a few months ago in exchange for me getting to donate all of his sweater vests....

I consider it a fair trade, though I have such fond memories of those pants.

I have nothing against wearing blue jeans sometimes when I do mundane/physical stuff. Often they are baggy and well loved, but they're comfy and deflect some of the creeps :P

When I was about 14, I had a phase of wearing ridiculously huge skater jeans (in men's sizes, that were far too big for me), oversized band-t-shirts, with either a band hoody or a "dragon" shirt over the top. They were kinda like hawaian shirts in loudness of print and shape, but they oftened depicted things like, well, dragons, and Dragonball Z character-rip-offs :P Oh, and I often paired this with black lipstick.

So when I finally put a mini skirt on and a cute omen top at around 15-16, my dad's friends couldn't believe I had finally "turned" back into a girl XD

Edit: I just realised how bad that last sentence sounded. Explanation: I went to our social club in that outfit one day, and one of my dad's close friends gasped "THERE ARE ACTUAL LEGS UNDER THOSE MASSIVE JEANS!" XD

Reading this I'm reminded of the fact that I still own a hawaiian shirt from when I waited tables. It's blue. I may take a pic of it one of these days.
